Comedy Living Room began in 2012 as an alternative option for up-and-coming comedians to try out their jokes. As the name suggests, the comedy sets took place in the founders' living room, offering up a low pressure space for comics to test out new material. Since those early days, the show has exploded to feature major acts at RIOT LA, SXSW, a monthly residency at The Hollywood Improv, and, now, living rooms around the world.
Thanks to a partnership with AltspaceVR, Comedy Living Room will now offer a live show presented through virtual reality. The experience hopes to match the house party cum stand-up show vibe that popularized the original shows, with a virtual BBQ, pool, and "endless Frisbee," according to Altspace.
